Dressing tables were once considered to be luxury furniture, which could only be afforded by the wealthy. However, with advances in materials and manufacturing processes, they are now accessible to a much wider audience.
As the popularity of dressing tables has grown, so too has the range of designs and features available on the market.
Have you always wanted a dressing table, but are feeling unsure how to choose the right one for your needs? Read on, as we talk you through the key features you’ll need to consider.
Dressing table with drawers
One of the most important considerations when purchasing a dressing table is the amount of storage space you’ll need.
If you’re simply planning on using your dressing table for a small amount of makeup and jewellery, then you might not need a dressing table with drawers. You could display these items in pretty organisers, adding to the aesthetics of your bedroom.
However, if you have more cosmetic products than you can count, along with various gadgets for styling your hair, and perfumes galore, a dressing table with drawers is obviously going to be a better solution.
There are a huge range of dressing tables with drawers available to purchase, featuring various storage configurations.
Some designs have just a couple of small drawers for those essential bits and pieces that you don’t particularly want to leave on show. Others have several larger drawers on one side, with the other end of the dressing table left free for a stool. The largest dressing tables on the market have drawers on both sides. They sometimes have lots of smaller drawers, too, which are perfect for keeping your jewellery safe.
Before investing in a new dressing table with drawers, consider exactly how much storage space you’re going to need.
Also, bear in mind that dressing tables with more storage tend to be larger, so double check your measurements before ordering to ensure it will fit in the intended location.
Mirrored dressing table
As the primary purpose of a dressing table is to give you a place to get ready, the value of a mirrored dressing table cannot be overestimated.
However, if you’ve found a dressing table that you love that doesn’t come with a mirror, don’t worry. There are many dressing table mirrors available in various styles and colours, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one that pairs perfectly with your chosen vanity unit.
Dressing table with drawers and mirror
Of course, it is possible to purchase a dressing table with drawers and mirror, giving you the best of both worlds.
Some mirrored dressing tables even feature lights around the mirror, ensuring a stunning ambiance whilst simultaneously improving your ability to perfect your eyeliner!
Modern or traditional dressing tables
Does modern furniture design appeal to you with its distinctive use of lines and curves? Or maybe the timelessness of a traditional oak dressing table is more suited to your style.
With dressing tables now available from many manufacturers in a plethora of materials, colours, and finishes, whether you’re looking for a modern dressing table or something more traditional, you’re sure to find a style you love at a price that’s within your budget.
Hopefully after reading this blog, you’ve now got a better idea of what features you’re looking for in a dressing table.
